Pandora's Box: The Changing Aspects of a Mythical Symbol

Front Cover
Princeton University Press, Jan 29, 2019 - Literary Criticism - 200 pages

Pandora waas the "pagan Eve," and she is one of the rare mythological figures to have retained vitality up to our day. Glorified by Calderon, Voltaire, and Goethe, she is familiar to all of us, and "Pandora's box" is a household word. In this classic study Dora and Erwin Panofsky trace the history of Pandora and of Pandora's box in European literature and art from Roman times to the present.
